Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1. Take the world with all its wealth,
Take my life with all its health;
Take my heart with all its love,
But give me Jesus.

Give me Jesus, blessèd Jesus,
He is all the world to me;
Give me Jesus, only Jesus,
He is all in all to me.

2. Take my gold with all its power,
Take my days—yes, every hour;
Take my eyes with all their tears,
But give me Jesus. [Refrain]

3. Take my hand with all its might,
Take my pride with all its blight;
Take my tongue with every word,
But give me Jesus. [Refrain]

4. Take my time with all its sin,
Take my soul, make pure within;
Take my joys and all I have,
But give me Jesus.
